Another fire at another housing project under construction. It’s not a coincidence.
The fire that destroyed the Alta Waverly apartment building under construction near the old Auto Row is the fifth suspicious fire at a housing construction site in and near Oakland.
In 2012, an arson fire engulfed a construction site for the Red Star senior housing complex near the West Oakland BART Station.
The security guard on site said that just before the fire, he ran off after three men threatened him. On Oct. 31, an arson fire tore through a three-story apartment complex under construction east of Oakland’s Lake Merritt.
That brings us to the Intersection, a mixed-use project in downtown Emeryville, on the Oakland border, that has burned twice in the past year.
After the second fire, grainy images of a man in a sweatshirt riding a bicycle and wearing a backpack in the middle of the night were released.
So while authorities search for clues as to what started the latest fire, a lot of people can’t help but wonder whether there’s a connection in all of these fires.
The reality in Oakland is that some people harbor resentment and anger as city leaders celebrate renewal with new developments like Alta Waverly.
So the Leftists burn them down.
